Definitely worth listening to and buying !!!!

It works though, and really well at that, capturing the band's retro approach with a measure of refinement and an overall dark atmosphere.

And certainly other songs and sections are very "doomy" - slower, heavy, intense.

Yet another great record from start to finish from the high and mighty Witchcraft. I'm left wondering if Swedes know how to make bad music? On Legend, Witchcraft takes a much different approach in their sound and production. They seem to have stepped away from the 70's influenced clean guitars and shallow drum production and gone more into a heavier distortion and thicker drum sound. Oddly enough, this record reminds me at times of TOOL, and Magnus even manages to sound much like Maynard James Keenan on parts (this should tell you how different the production is compared to previous records). I'm as a big a fan as you can be of the Swedish stoner movement and the classic rock roots it seems to have risen from... but don't let the comments of the production keep you from checking out this record. The movement throughout the record is fantastic, the atmosphere is dynamic and keeps the record moving at a brilliant pace. The songwriting and essence of Witchcraft still shines despite the different tones and sound quality. I have found the drastic change in sound to be more refreshing than disappointing. I know there will be some die hards that won't like this and expect bands to recycle the same sound they fell in love with years ago. If that's you, perhaps you won't like this record and you can just wait til the new Graveyard record.

It's been five years since the last Witchcraft album (2007's Alchemist) was released, and in that time the Swedish traditional/doom metal band more or less broke up, reformed with new members and switched record labels. Now signed to Nuclear Blast and featuring two new guitarists (Tom Jondelius and Simon Solomon) and a new drummer (Oscar Johansson), Witchcraft returns at a time when the style of metal they've played for more than a decade is more popular than ever.

Legend is the title of the album, the band's fourth overall, and as soon as it starts playing you know that even with the new lineup it has the same unmistakable Witchcraft sound and energy. Witchcraft has always managed to hit that sweet spot between Black Sabbath and Uriah Heep (but mostly Black Sabbath) circa 1970. That comes from the heavy, doomy Tony Iommi-worshipping guitar riffs, Magnus Pelander's Ozzy Osbourne-style wail and the overall gloomy feel they bring to every song. They bring all these elements to bear on Legend, starting with the up-tempo groove of "Deconstruction" and continuing all the way through to the somber, plodding 12-minute closer "Dead End." Other highlights include the melancholy yet infectiously melodic "Flag of Fate" and "Ghosts House" and the wickedly catchy "It's Not Because of You," which is the album's first single.

Legend was produced by Jens Bogren at Fascination Street Studios, so there's a different vibe than on previous Witchcraft albums. Bogren, who made a name for himself mixing bands like Opeth, Paradise Lost and Katatonia, has an identifiable style, and it's more polished than Witchcraft fans may be used to.

I've heard the fans of the older albums grumble a bit about the new production and I have to say that, in my opinion, it's unfounded. The production is modern, but not in a bad way at all. The band is tight and Magnus has the best voice in the genre. I own all of the albums and this stands right up there with the rest. Fantastic and worth the wait.

I for one am very pleased with the resurgence of melody in new metal bands. I predicted a return to more songwriting craft, figuring the metalcore screaming and practically tuneless guitars would soon grow old. With bands like Witchcraft, Ghost, In Solitude and Orange Goblin making huge waves, it is indeed safe for quality songwriting to resurface again. Witchcraft hail from Uppsala, Norway, but have that classic metal groove, channeling (of course) Sabbath, hints of the more mystical side of Led Zeppelin and other great heavy bands from yesteryear. But that serves as a template, not a full blown retro act, something Wolfmother has been accused of.
When the CD started with a doomy guitar riff, I thought, okay, it's a doom metal outfit. No sweat, I dig doom metal. Then, unmistakable Sabbath jackhammers started in, and then some of the smoothest and melodic vocals I've heard in a long time, right up there with Papa Emeritus from Ghost. The guitars are up front, riffs move in and out, and the album breathes with soft passages that recall some of the mellower moments of bands like Nazareth or Zeppelin, instead of leaning toward prog territory. It's classic rock revisited with a shot in the arm of fresh vocal ideas and a modern production. Witchcraft have a sound all their own, using their influences wisely and sparingly. I've had "Legend" only for a few days, but it is growing on me, always a good sign. People who wouldn't mind modern metal if it still had some of the old hooks of before should check out Witchcraft and one of my favorite bands, Orange Goblin. This is how you use the past to fuel an exciting future for heavy music.
